Opaldia to Offer DiaGenic's Gene Expression Tests in UK

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Opaldia will distribute DiaGenic’s breast cancer blood test in the UK and will use a research-use-only version of the test in its own studies until the test receives the CE Mark for use in Europe.
 
Opaldia will offer the gene expression test to UK patients under its Breastcare Program. The firm already offers Agendia’s MammaPrint, which is used in disease prognosis, and Agendia's CupPrint, which identifies the origin of metastasized tumors.
 
Diagenic hopes to receive the CE Mark for the breast cancer test by the end of 2008.
